Fabulous folk music at the MMC

On Tuesday, September 20, the Maritzburg Musician’s Club returns to its roots as one of the few South African folk clubs in the 80s that changed the course of music in South Africa today.

Appearing at the MMC at La Casa in Quarry Road, Pietermaritzburg, will be Fiona Tozer, who originated the Durban Folk Club, who will be performing with Dan Wilson in their intergalactic duo – Quark.

These two musicians from diverse musical backgrounds have been fusing the different elements of their musical experience and composing music for a theme album about space-time and the universe.

Always aiming for the unexpected, the eclectic mix focuses on poly-rhythms, unusual time signatures and chord progressions, and features bass, guitar, voice and loops.

The club will also be showcasing the talent of the young musicians:

  • Nish Pillay, who has been making a name for himself as a percussionist and dexterous Tabla performer;
  • Jessica Martins, a vocalist and guitarist from Ballito; and
  • Inner Truth, a hard-working Afro-soul band from Scottsville.

Tickets R40. Doors open at 7pm.
